Description
The Incredible Platypus Eminent English zoologists at the end of the eighteenth century studied carefully the first platypus specimens, convinced that it must be a hoax, the work of skillful Chinese taxidermists. There were other curiosities already known from Australia, but in the platypus too many things were just impossible. Firstly, it is a furry animal, like our dogs and cats, yet it has a duck’s toothless bill instead of a muzzle, and forages for food in water, much like a duck. Secondly, it nurses its young - feeds them with milk - just like cats and dogs do but these young hatch from eggs, laid and incubated by the mother. Thirdly, it is the only truly venomous mammal, that is, one which has a separate venom gland and a spur to deliver the venom. Male platypuses bear such a weapon on their hind feet. The sting is extremely painful, and to a small animal, such as a dog, it may be lethal. The twentieth century found still more. While hunting underwater, the platypus closes its eyes, ears and nostrils. It is also the only mammal which uses an electric sense: the microscopic receptors in the skin of its bill sense the electric currents produced by moving muscles of worms, shrimps and other prey (the same kind of currents that, when made by the muscles of our hearts, are registered in an electrocardiogram). And now we know its genome sequence, which was published on May 8, 2008, and is being searched for even more incredible features. Prof. Tomasz Umiński, University of Warsaw
